Young Entrepreneur: Falun Gong Changed Me and My Business Boomed
(Minghui.org) As a successful young entrepreneur, I used to live an empty life. Falun Gong changed me completely, and my declining business boomed.
Before I began to practice Falun Gong, also known as Falun Dafa, I had my own, very successful business with an annual income in the millions of yuan. I married a foreigner, and many people envied me. The villagers from my rural hometown called me a “golden phoenix.”
But without a purpose of life, I often went to bars and dance halls, and spent a lot of money on expensive handbags and watches. Drinking with my customers became routine. It was like Master's poem, “Lacking All Restraint” from Hong Yin III:
“Luxury and feasting—the modern worldFascinated by demons, dancing hysterically,all of which leads to depravityIndulging demonic nature, apart from the divineAfter entering Hell, there's no chance of getting out”
When I was five months pregnant, I left China to live in my husband's home country so that our child would be born there. My business began to suffer shortly after I left due to the rumor that I would not be back.
After I gave birth in October 2010, I had problems with my eyes, arms, and shoulders, and they often ached.
My mother is a Falun Gong practitioner. She often told me about it and wanted me to practice, but I always refused.
One day, I saw the book Zhuan Falun laying on the table and was suddenly curious. I finished the first two chapters in one sitting, and then I had a dream while napping. I saw myself smashing things madly at home, like a demon. Later in the dream, my mother and another person came to my bedside and took away a sparkling greenish spirit out of my body.
I was so scared that I woke up. After that, my body became light, and all my physical problems disappeared. After I learned more about Dafa, I realized that Master had cleansed my body in my dream.
I knew that I had obtained Dafa late, so I was strict about following Dafa’s standards. Master said in Zhuan Falun:
“Accordingly, genuine cultivation has a higher xinxing requirement for students. Everyone sitting here came to learn this Dafa, so youmust here conduct yourselves as true practitioners, and you must give up attachments.”
I had to get rid of my attachments, such as to fame and comfort, showing off, and lust, and I had to improve myself. I also wanted others to know how I had benefited from the practice, how good Dafa is, what the communist party is really like, and the importance of quitting it.
When my baby was five months old, my whole family moved back to China.
My employees noticed I’d changed, so I told them about Falun Gong. They worried about my safety, but I told them that I was not afraid since I was not doing anything wrong.
I noticed that some of the employees kept their distance from me. I gathered them together and told them about my physical and mental improvements through Falun Gong. I asked them to point out anything I did wrong and said that I would correct and improve myself. They were surprised at how much I had changed. Our relationship quickly returned to normal.
I visited my former customers and said I hoped they would come back to do business with me again. I told them about Falun Gong and the importance of quitting the communist party. Soon, more and more customers returned. The business boomed and the company income was restored as well.
Now I am living outside of China and have not gone back for several years. The business is still doing really well without my presence. My husband saw my changes, too, and also believes that Falun Dafa is good.
I will firmly believe in Dafa and Master, do the three things well, and return home with Master.
